Liam Gallagher is set to make a film about the final years of The Beatles.
The former Oasis frontman is planning to adapt ‘The Longest Cocktail Party’, a memoir written by the Beatles’ “house hippy” in the 1960s, Richard DiLello.
The biopic is about the “wild rise and fall” of the band’s record company Apple between 1968 and the break-up in 1970.
Liam Gallagher’s film company, In 1 Productions, will work with UK Independent Revolution Films.
A spokesman for In 1 Productions told the BBC:
This will be a film with humour and affection, providing an insider’s look at what it meant to be a young man caught up in the wild swirl of the music business, celebrities and the tail end of the swinging 60s in London.”
This sounds like it could be pretty great, if done right!
In related news former OASIS drummer Tony McCarroll will release a book called ‘Oasis: The Truth, the Noel Truth, is Nothing Like the Truth’ on October 4th.
Simon Cowell is in talks with Paul McCartney to appear on the X Factor live final.
Sir Paul McCartney is apparently being lined up for the X Factor final set for December 13th and the contestants will be asked to perform Beatles songs in his honour. The Beatles have written some of the biggest songs in history and this will be a massive coup for Simon and X Factor if it actually happens.
Rihanna and Alicia Keys are set to perform on X Factor next week and Lady Gaga and Janet Jackson for the semi finals which is also set to be Michael Jackson week.
It looks like this year’s X Factor is going to be remembered more for the celebrity performances rather than the contestants!
